"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23


A 7 this morning 9 of Ridgewood's high school students and 4 of their fearless leaders (it will be 5 leaders when Chase joins us tomorrow) packed their things into their vehicles and drove for 3 and a half hours to Rogers Park on the north side of Chicago.

This past weekend 10 of Ridgewood's Middle School students and their Spark leaders came over to my house for an overnighter and Saturday morning service project.

I was incredibly blessed to get to spend time with such an awesome group of 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins and was raised from the dead to give us new life.

This is the Gospel and anyone who believes in the Gospel will be saved.

Our theme for Flame this year has been the Gospel 24-7.  The lessons at our meetings have centered on helping our students live the Gospel out in every area of life.  We have looked at what the Gospel is, what it means to follow Christ (trust), who Jesus is and we have lived the Gospel out together through acts of worship and service.
